Maserati Quattroporte, the model which established the
category of “Luxury Sports Saloons”, can be considered
something of a Maserati masterpiece. After five years of
success, with more than 15,000 cars delivered and 46
international awards, the Quattroporte is now being
presented with a new look and new technical solutions.
The history of art is characterised by audacious artists who
challenged pre-existing conventions. Similarly the
Pininfarina design team, thanks to their unrivalled and

Maserati Quattroporte, yet always mindful of the class,
glamour and exclusivity which represent its inner essence.
The personality and glamour of the Maserati flagship are now
represented by two products: the Quattroporte and the
The former is fitted with the familiar 4.2 litre 400 hp V8
engine, while the latter adopts the new 4.7 litre 430 hp V8
recently introduced on the GranTurismo S, with a different
specification. Both cars feature the 6-speed automatic
transmission developed in association with ZF.
The main styling changes are to the most recognisable

front and rear light units are also updated, featuring LEDs.
On the side, the under-door moulding is more noticeable,
with a line that runs into that of the new bumpers, which
have a wider protective band and more pronounced rear
styling. The door mirrors are also new, with a more dynamic
shape and a more streamlined mounting to the door.
The interior has a new centre console and the controls are
grouped more closely together for even more convenient
operation. The car’s range of navigation systems is also
fully updated, now comprising the New Maserati Multimedia
Two new shades of leather, Marrone
Corniola (brown) and Sabbia (sand), replacing the beige
which was previously in the range, debut on the Quattroporte
S and Quattroporte respectively.
